Creative Craft: Woodgrain Gift Wrap Vase

Tuesday, November 27th, 2012

We were delighted to see our Woodgrain gift wrap given a whole new life in the November issue of Better Homes and Garden magazine. A vase wrapped in our Woodgrain gift wrap creates the perfect trunk for a “growing” bouquet. Think of all the possibilities for fall or winter weddings! How amazing would it be to fill the head table with faux bois vases for the bridesmaids to preserve their bouquets during the reception?! If you’ve discovered new uses for our gift wrap or other products, please share them with us, we love to hear from our fabulous and creative customers! Happy Holidays!
(shout out to the Little House in the City blog for also posting about this fun and innovative craft project)

Greer Chicago

Friday, October 31st, 2008

GREER was founded with the mission of bringing a little more beauty,  a bit more thought and a touch of civility into the world.  With a  passion for paper and communication, a background in advertising, a University of Chicago MBA and a discerning eye, owner Chandra Greer has created a company whose goal is to provide a well-edited array of some of the best-designed paper goods in the world.  “GREER’s offerings range from well-known brands like Pancake & Franks, Elum (which Chandra feels is one of the most masterful stationery lines around,) Egg Press, Vera Wang and Snow & Graham to a huge selection of little known, up-and-coming independents.”

Chandra, IMHO is one of the best when it comes to merchandising product.  Take a look at some of these shots of her store and you’ll see why.
